Let's face it; most people do not know much about head lice and really do not WANT to know much about head lice. After all, head lice is not a fun topic. However, the reality is that the incidence of head lice is on the rise and lice are commonplace in life today, especially among school-age children. LiceDoctors is on a mission to get schools to send home information about how to identify, treat, and prevent head lice. There is so much mis-information out there. For example, contrary to popular belief, dogs do not carry lice, chlorine does not kill lice, and cleaning the house will have little to no effect on the outcome of your case of lice. The most common mis-information is about lice treatment techniques.
The reality is that lice chemicals often are ineffective in treating head lice. Many people rush out to the drug store and waste money and time on lice shampoos. It is very experienced frustrating to apply these chemicals to your children and then find live bugs in the head a few days later.
